It’s a very personal choice and one that many women & Brides struggle with. A lot of brides are not lipstick wearing lovers and prefer to wear gloss but for your wedding day it’s best to wear a lipstick as it lasts longer than gloss and you won’t need to reapply it so often.
Here I have just a small selection of lipsticks that have been popular with my brides and they range in colours and textures.
Inglot Liquid Lipstick in Matte finish:
A creamy consistency which dries to a matte finish leaving lips looking perfect for hours, very little touch up needed and didn’t flake or make lips look dry or cracked when I tested them.
Inglot Matte liquid lip tint #11
A gorgeous pink/coral lip colour if you want to have a pop of colour on your lips but it’s not overwhelming. A pretty shade which will enhance your lipshape and give your make up extra definition.
Inglot liquid lip tint matte #12
A pretty pinky/red shade for those more daring brides. Perfect for a vintage look along with simple eye make up and a statement lip.
The Balm, Ima Goodkisser:
One of my popular coral/pink lipsticks. It’s moisturising and has lots of pigment so very easy to apply and great for lips which are prone to dryness.
The Balm,Mai Billsbepaid :
The perfect nude for Irish skin tones, pretty shade with moisturising properties and a creamy,satin finish.
For the bride who wants more colour and is used to wearing a stronger lip colour. This is like a glaze lip colour so perfect for dry lips but will need to be reapplied more regularly compared to a matte lipstick.
Wet n Wild 912c:
One of my more popular deeper nudes with brides. Adding more depth and because of it’s consistency it will have more staying power.
A timeless bridal pink lipstick and is still very popular for a pretty yet understated lip for the classic bridal look. Because it is a frost finish it will give a sheen to the lips and also great for dry lips.
Mac, Velvet Teddy:
A cult lipstick associated with Kylie Jenner as this was her staple lipstick before she produced her own line of lipkits. It is a deeper nude lipstick with great staying power and pigment so won’t need as much touch ups compared to a gloss or a frosted finish.
A gorgeous classic creamy nude shade with a slight sheen to it for a more natural bride.
A classic nude favourite with Mac lovers gives your lips the nude look without being to orangey or overdone. This is complemented very well with a gloss applied over it. Perfect for someone who chooses a very dramatic eye look.
A pretty pink which is a cremesheen finish. Lovely on the mother of the bride also. Because it’s a cremesheen it will not be drying on the lips.
A pinky brown lipstick. Very popular for the bride who wants a pinky/brown lipstick which isn’t too daring or bright. It has a frost finish so not drying on lips but has the appearance of a creamy lipstick.
YSL Rouge Voupté Shine:
A clear moisturising lipstick which treats and cares for your lips when you apply it. Great on its own to add moisture to dry lips or over a matte lipstick or lipliner to add shine and dimension to lips making them appear larger.
A gorgeous soft creamy peach nude lipstick for those who want a soft kissable lip without too much drama. This is a very easy to wear colour and is gorgeous teamed with a brown smoky eye and coral peach blusher.
Charlotte Tilbury, Nude Kate:
A gorgeous nude with orange/peachy undertones. Gorgeous on tanned/swallow skin and beautiful packaging when you pull it out of your bag to top up your lipstick.
Charlotte Tilbury, Matte Revolution,Between the sheets:
This pink/coral is one of my new found favourites for brides who want a pink which is soft enough for their wedding day. It is matte so will last longer than a cream or frost lipstick.
Rimmel, Kate Moss #45:
I’m so happy I found this lipstick it has been a huge hit with my clients who hate lipstick but need a slight colour on their lips. It is a soft pinky brown and so easy to wear. It suits everyone and is even more gorgeous with a pop of gloss on top.
A pretty pink which is the perfect choice for brides or anyone who likes a deeper pink. This would be best suited for people with fuller lips and quite a natural eye make up look. It’s a creamy consistency and although it won’t dry out your lips don’t expect it to be long lasting.
The Balm, Meet Matt(e) Hughes, Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks:
Sincere, A fabulous mix of a nude with a Mauve/pink/brown hue which gives the lips definition without being too dark. Lasts approx 4hrs+ Gorgeous alone or with a dab of gloss in the centre of the lower lip.
Adoring, A deep,rich,luxurious red with wine/burgundy base. Not for the faint hearted. Would suit a darker skin tone perfectly and would be stunning with a nude lined eye make up look. Would best suit larger fuller lips and not for dry flaky lips as it dries to a matte finish. Again you can expect it to stay put and not transfer for at least 4hours.
Chivalrous, A bright Barbie pink. I’ve had a few brides who will opt for a statement lip and this would be just amazing for that look. It really is as bright and beautiful as you see it here. Not for the faint hearted. You need confidence and flawless make up to pull this off. It really is such a beautiful shade for a summer wedding or a girls night out. Will last 4hrs+ but will need to be reapplied after eating/drinking etc.
And last but not least my budget favourites:
Penneys P.S. Liquid Lipsticks:
PS Liquid Lipstick #15 Nude:
€2.50 available from Penneys and this is very popular it’s mostly always sold out and impossible to get your hands on. It is a very wearable nude lipstick with quite a tacky,sticky finish so will not be drying and if you lose it you won’t be devastated.Ive used this on top of high end lipsticks to make the lipstick three dimensional and to add the illusion of volume to the lips. A must have for everyone.
PS Liquid Lipstick #02 Peach:
I’ve had many a bridesmaid fall in love with this and just in shock that this is from Penneys. It’s such a gorgeous peach and so pretty on the lips. And at only €2.50 it’s amaze value.
CATRICE, Volumizing Lip Booster:
I stumbled upon this when I was waiting for my prescription and playing with the testers on the CATRICE stand and was drawn to it. I have used it on every make up application since and everyone has loved the smell,taste and slight tingling sensation it gives to plump your lips. It’s quite a subtle pink so it would go over any lipstick,liner or gorgeous on its own for kissable soft glossy lips. available nationwide and only €3.99.
